WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump is responding to Mitt Romney's evisceration of him by noting that the 2012 GOP presidential nominee begged for Trump's endorsement.
Trump says he could have "said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."
Trump was responding to Romney's comments earlier, in which the former nominee and Massachusetts governor warned Republicans that Trump is a fake, a misogynist and dangerous.
Trump says during a rally in Portland, Maine, that Romney proved he's a "choke artist" when he lost the 2012 presidential race to Barack Obama. He adds that Romney declined to run a third time this year because he was afraid of Trump.
Trump adds that he's made more money than Romney.
